How clean is your office?

ways to keep healthy in the workplace

Most of our time is spent at work, which makes health and hygiene in the workplace incredibly important for healthy living, and ensuring we don’t take any unwanted germs home to our families. While it’s impossible and unrealistic to make your workplace completely germ-free, Dettol representative and member of The Global Hygiene Council Dr Kgosi Letlape suggests some basic precautions to take to prevent yourself falling ill, as outlined in the easy tips below:

Personal care at work

  • Ensure that you practice good hygiene habits in the workplace by sneezing into the crook of your arm and not into your hand, as handshaking is one of the best ways to pass on germs.

  • If you use a tissue, discard immediately into a closed bin and wash your hands immediately.

  • Keep your hands away from your face as viruses can effectively transfer from your hands into the body via the eyes, nose and mouth.
